Humility Is Not A Prerequisite

I'm sure you've heard that Wasilla Hillbilly hanger-on Levi Johnston will either have his run for mayor filmed as a reality TV series, or run for mayor as a stunt for a reality TV series. Several points:
  • What does this have to do with "reality?"
  • Is Levi actually literate enough to fill out the relevant forms, or will the producers help him out there?
  • Just when you thought it would be impossible to make American politics any more trivial, laughable and undignified...
This story has been all over the place, and really wouldn't be worth remarking on if I hadn't seen this:
Jones says Johnston is serious about a run, either for mayor or City Council.

Asked whether he believes people will take the run seriously, with TV cameras rolling, Jones said: "People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston."
So all you mere mortals out there, Levi Johnston deserves to be taken as seriously as Jesus. I guess that's pretty serious.

I think the majority of folks who can read should read this:
Levi and the producers included.
